Junior Creative Consultant
Facilitating cultural exchange through visual media
I believe storytelling is what brings art to life. I have a very personal approach and like to work closely on a team with others.
As a child, growing up between two languages and cultures, I felt split in my identity and that it was difficult to communicate my experiences with my peers. I reconciled this through photos. I am passionate about intercultural communication and the visual world, and I view visual media as a space free from language barriers. For me, it is a medium that fosters understanding through shared experience.
I chose to work at Factorr to help bring that magic to others.
